I ran a 2x24" VHO retro kit on my 29gal w/ much success. The ballast it came w/ will power up to 4x48" 110watt lamps if you decide to upgrade in the future.

Also, be sure to check the sponsors forum here. Some will give a discount to AA.com members. HTH

the lighting i have is, http://hellolights.com/comfluorsys.html ... i was talking to the guy at liverocks.com and he was telling me, be sure to have at least 1.5 lbs/gal. of lr for a reef tank....also, refugiums are highly recommended by people who have coral tanks....

I would get the rock now, seeing as you might get another cycle if you add more down the road(correct me if im wrong but i do remember reading that on a tread.)

Yes. It would be easier to add all the lr at one time. 1.5 to 2lbs of lr is ideal for a reef tank.
